Today is Thursday, which means a new challenge over at Moving Along With The Times.  Today Judith has chosen


as the theme - so as long as it's got Happy it's in!

For my card, I dug out those old Basic Grey papers again - had them for ages and never used these bright colours, then last week, all of a sudden I've used them twice! Think it's the sunshine yellow that is pulling me towards them - hopefully I'm dropping hints here for the weather as it's gone a bit chilly again!

My image today is a Saturated Canary one - a freebie a year or so ago, and now available to purchase.  That bow is back again too - another thing I've had for ages and not really used!  Colouring is by Promarker and I think that's about it!

A Gem of a Challenge - Spring is in the Air
Crafty Calender - Things with wings - the teeny tiny chick! (Perhaps too small?)
Crazy4Challenges - C4C231 - Eggs - in nest!

Cute Just Got Cuter!

I know I'm still working my way through my Bugaboo guest designing month, but as I like so many digi stamps now it's only fair that some of the others get a look in now and again!

So today, I'm back with All Dressed Up and another of their Freebies - available here.

I'm also back with another card made using the brilliant sketch by Kraftyhands - so love this one hence it's re-use!  Papers today are LOTV and colouring by Promarker.

Spring Time

Well I don't know about where you are, but I'd certainly say Spring has sprung here!  What a great week we've had weather wise, it's been dry, it's been sunny and dare I say it... it's been warm!

The daffodils are a mass of sunshine yellow at the moment and it's a joy to be outside again - albeit with a jumper!

Anyway, back to inside activities first, and this weeks Saturday challenge over at Catch the Bug.  This time our theme is, unsurprisingly

Spring Time

and with so many great Bugaboo Spring stamps available this year, the only problem is, deciding which one to use!  I went with Spring Friends available here.

So, my card uses Basic Grey papers and as always, is coloured by Promarker.

Passion for Promarkers - So Sentimental
Thru The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

Creative Card Crew - Spring
CHPP - Patterned papers

Sorry I haven't been around much this week, it's always the same when the boys are at home - too many other things to do.  So far this week, Colin has sat and passed his theory driving test, we've viewed various accomodation for him for the Autumn when he hopefully starts Uni. We've been visiting, gardening, shopping and basically doing things together - got to make the most of their time at home! Jx

Also winner at Creative Knockouts and getting a prize from Sweet n Sassy Stamps - no blinkie from CK!
